ROC City Tattoo Expo 2013

roc-0By johndotcom 
There are only two things you need to know about the ROC City Tattoo Expo…

  • 1. If you are a tattooer, this show should be on your tat con list!
  • 2. If you are a tattoo enthusiast, this show should be on your tat con list!

Actually, there’s more to it than that… But just like me, that’s the tall and skinny of it… I cannot begin to thank Jet (Joseph DiProjetto, Love Hate Tattoo), Shane Stevens and the whole ROC Crew for making this experience better every time I come to Rochester…  (more…)

ROC City Tattoo Expo: On the Road in Rochester, NY

By John 
ROC City (now in its third year) had some pretty stiff convention competiton last weekend… ROC City was one of three major US shows that weekend, including the biennial Green Bay show and Hell City PHX. However, despite these shows, a hurricane, an earthquake and whatever other acts of God were thrown in the mix, ROC City definetely put the R-O-C back in rock

Tattoo Artist Magazine: Rose Riot at NXNE and NIX

Despite an auspicious start my trip to Toronto to cover North by Northeast (NXNE) music festival and North Ink Exposure (NIX) tattoo convention was quite informative and enjoyable.

We embarked on this trip with less than a full night of sleep between us,  so by the time we made it to Canada we were what you might call, spent

Dan Smith: Sketch to Completion

By Dan Smith

As this is an industry magazine, and similar posts have been done on reference/inspiration and technique/execution, I know I am not “giving anything away” that isn’t already out there, but mainly showing how I would do it…

Northern Ink Exposure, on the Road in Toronto… Eh!

By John Niederkorn
Oh… Canada? The Northern Ink Exposure (NIX) ended a string of three successive tattoo conventions for me, which would explain this post’s extreme tardiness. It was my first time on Canadian soil and Kent had me super stressed about Canadian customs… Okay, lets get my story straight; “Hello, I’m here on ‘vacation’ and in no way will I be taking your crazy Monopoly money back to my country.”  Luckily for us North By Northeast (NXNE) was the same weekend as NIX so I had a built in excuse…
